Any ETA for new update? It's been quite a while since last one, just hope to hear some good news.

When can we expect MemCard Pro support? I've got one on the way :)

They have sent one to me. Once I have it I can start on adding support for it.

This is really cool to hear. Thanks Matt! I just preordered a MemCard Pro for later in the year :)

It's nice but I would like to see a normal SD card support first. Perhaps you should focus on fixing known problems before adding something new. The issue with random hanging on good-for-everything-but-psio kingston cards still exsist.

We're looking at adding an SD Card buffer to assist with giving cards time to transfer data.

It's PS1 that's so picky about timings, not PSIO.

X-station also has weird issues with certain cards in certain games. Multiple issue threads for X-station were closed due to SD card incompatibly.

I believe making all SD cards "work" is a pipe dream, especially since we still have some game issues to resolve in order to start from a legit baseline.
"Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, five times more, perhaps not even that."

No ETA at the moment. It's still in the works.

Good morning all !
It's been a while since I see the site not giving too much news since the new group on discord was made.
Do we have an approximate date of a possible update for the backup support and management? Have you encountered any difficulties since?
Will there be a symbiosis with the ps1digital to have the registration on the osd of the ps1d , as on other ode?(this writes the name of the game for example on the osd menu.)
Will there be a connection with the memcard pro too!

I'm in need of info ^^

Will the next update be "major"? Like, is it getting a lot of beta testing, and will fix the remaining games? Also, is working on the clipping still a priority? That's kind of a big deal to me. Thanks.

By all accounts the next update is gonna be pretty big and there has been a bunch of beta testing going on. Also, if you look on the Project Task Progress you can see that CDDA clipping is still being worked on.

yes and moreover it has not moved for a while that's why questions come ^^

I wish that there is a dithering option with the PSIO, it is surely an option that is not necessarily requested but it could be used to entertain the games and especially sometimes to enjoy some games in this visual there, and what is more when you play with the ps1digital mod it really makes the games sometimes cleaner I assure you, so I hope that this request will be taken into account, and it should not be as complicated to set up as memory card management, right? ^^

Anything further on the new firmware? I know there's the beta test Discord but I'm not a part of it, and there's been no update on the task progress topic since late March. Just curious since I have a Memcard Pro coming next month.

We've been working on SD card write support and a new USB protocol. We are still working on the latest firmware. It will support the MemCard Pro but we have a few things to do until we release it :)

Maybe. We're working hard on it still. It's coming along nicely :)

I noticed the Project Task Progress doesn't say anything about the HC05 core. It shouldn't be kept in the shadows since we are finding games with loading issues under the current solution (Wipeout XL, Abe's Oddysee NTSC-U, Crisis Beat, etc).
